6:01 am
steve played tennis in tampa. >> no, down in -- i was in del ray beach and we have some pictures, we'll show them to you if a couple of minutes where i look really bad. >> before we do that, we'll get to your headlines. >> all right. a young asian man who boarded a flight to canada disguised as an elderly white man is expected to appear in a hearing in vancouver. he board a plane in hong kong wearing a silicone mask. he removed the mask in the airplane bathroom after the plane took off. he doesn't appear to have any terrorist ties but u.s. homeland security director janet napolitano says she's concerned by the breach. >> no eyes. >> while you were sleeping, qantas decided to keep the entire fleet of airbus 380's grounded. they found oil leaks in three other airplanes. they are trying to figure out what caused an engine to blow up in mid air forcing an emergency landing in singapore. two other airlines have inspected their a-380 engines
6:02 am
but have apparently found no problems thankfully. oil executives are expected to get grilled in washington, d.c. today over what caused the gulf coast oil spill. the presidential commission investigating the spill will be questioning executives from b.p. transocean and halliburton for the next two days. the panel's lead investigator will present some of his findings over what went wrong, excuse me in, the lead up to the rig explosion. and more than 45,000 runners taking part in the new york city marathon! the winner of the men's race was ethiopia's runner, he never ran the race before and managed to finish in 2 hours and 8 minutes. on the women's side, first place went to edna of kenya. her time just 2 hours and 28 minutes. all eyes, however, on rescued chilean miner edison pena. he trained underground running 1,000 yards back and forth for nearly 10 weeks. pena finishing in five hours and 40 minutes to complete the grueling course. >> he had some knee jobs, walked a little bit but got through it.
6:03 am
>> my husband ran the marine corps marathon in under four hours. >> are you kidding? >> yeah. that was two weeks ago. that was halloween. >> i have -- i drove the marine corps marathon in about an hour and a half. not! >> the crowds are brutal. >> they are. >> what do you mean brutal? >> there's just so many people. yeah, yeah. >> no, just trying to get down there, you know, the metros are jammed and everything. it's harder to get there. >> indeed. i saw them when they were shutting down the bridges. i was traveling saturday night and that was already a problem but at 3 minutes after the hour, in less than one hour, president obama will give a speech to india's parliament after meeting with the country's prime minister. wendell goler is live in new delhi with the latest. you've been up a while, wendell? >> we'll talk about that later, brian. highlight of the president's address will be call to reform the united nations security council to give india a more substantial role whether or not it's actually a permanent one by the u.s., britain, france,
6:04 am
russia and china. the president says the security council should reflect the realities of the 21st century and he'll announce plans to reform u.s. export control loss to end the controls on civil space and defense technology. these are restrictions that date from the cold war when this country was more closely allied with the soviet union. the president earlier today met one on one with prime minister singh. he was mr. obama's first state guest. this is a reciprocal visit. both men called their relationship one of the defining relationships of the 21st century. with india's 1.2 billion person economy growing at 10% over the next three decades, he welcomes u.s. investment and the president says our country will be happy to provide it. >> the major trade deals that were signed in mumbai were an important step forward in elevating i understandia to one
6:05 am
america's top trading partners. i'm pleased to announce the agreement to buy planes that will support 22,000 jobs back in the united states. >> pakistan remains a complicating element in the u.s.-india relationship. prime minister declined to answer a question when asked point blank whether the u.s. should declare pakistan a terror-sponsoring nation, something that would probably end that country's support for the war against al-qaida. but thinks the terror machine in pakistan "is as active as ever before." back to you. >> all right. wendell goler live in new delhi. the president of the united states is supposed to speak there in the parliament chamber at 5:30 local time and we will show you part of it live right here on "fox & friends" including the fact that it's very -- it's first time the teleprompter has ever been used in that facility ever. >> so it's always great to be a part of history.
6:06 am
all right. 5 minutes after the top of the hour. before president obama left to india and indonesia to his far east trip and before he set up a schedule to meet with the republican leaders and democratic leaders when he returned, he sat down with steve kroft again of "60 minutes," the man he talked to before he ran for president and after he won for president. it seems like they talk again. >> the president had a terrible week, let's face it. historic drubbing in the midterms. here's the president, if you didn't see him last night on "60 minutes" where he actually blames the republicans for the health care that his party pushed through. huh? >> i made the decision to go ahead and do it. and it proved as costly politically as we expected. probably actually a little more costly than we expected politic politically. >> in what ways? >> part because i couldn't get the kind of cooperation from republicans that i had hoped for. we thought if we shaped the bill
6:07 am
that wasn't that different from bills that had previously been introduced by republicans, including a republican governor in massachusetts who is now running for president, that, you know, we would be able to find some common ground there. and we just couldn't. >> did he say scott brown is running for president? >> it's a little bit stunning. they accomplished it. >> why? >> because it's -- first of all, when it comes to the republicans, they did have ideas. they laid them out there. even though democrats, the favorite line is to say the republicans didn't have any ideas. remember we had to have that big summit by president obama called the republicans down and basically tried to embarrass them in front of -- embarrass john mccain and then didn't do them any favors. it was all for show that they were going to move on anyway. so they own it. they pass it and they own it. they couldn't get a single republican to vote for it is telling. >> he's talking about mitt romney.
6:08 am
mitt romney's mass care has been very -- although well intended has not worked out well. the costs are too high. the hospitals are complaining and the health insurance companies while providing insurance have been capped. now they're starting to lose money and they're saying i don't know how long i can do this and they took that model ask made it national. on top of that, as they look at this entire thing, 2,000 plus pages. if steve kroft said can you maim more people that read it and understand why the american people might be a little bit up in arms because they don't know what's in it and why the speaker of the house said we have to pass it. those are the things that are the real issue. >> those are things that people remember. here's another telling excerpt where the president admits he didn't know how to follow through on his many campaign promises. >> i think that there are times where we said let's just get it done instead of worrying about how we're getting it done and i think that's a problem. i'm paying a political price for that. when you're campaigning, i think
6:09 am
you're liberated to say things without saying about ok, how am i going to practically implement this? >> do you think you were naive? >> no, i don't think i'm naive. i think these things are hard to do. >> they are hard to do. he's doing a lot of spinning right now. >> i think one of the best things that he could have done is gone on this trip and just stood back and, in fact, we'll talk to a guest later on in the show, a democrat who feels like maybe the best thing president obama can do is let the republicans have their day, go on a trip to india. instead, he's like constantly in our face and i don't think anybody understands what he's saying. he's constantly contradicting himself. he did show a little bit more contrition. maybe that's his advisors are telling them they want to hear. >> maybe they want to hear what george w. bush, his boss said where we really took a thumping there. >> remember, he said they took a shalacking. >> that's true. i also -- the president said, you know, i was easy to paint me as a big spending liberal because they didn't explain to
6:10 am
everybody why i was spending so much. but i thought that we already made progress past this argument because in "the new york times" article, it says there's not so much that he was spending, it's that the projects didn't pan out. there's no such thing as a shovel ready project. ok, that is huge news. that's -- you're telling the american people to get $50 billion, nothing was really ready. congress let me down. >> right. >> so as the president, you know, he's -- we're going to hear from him in about 40 minutes. i'm sure he's not going to talk about any of this stuff. in fact, the white house is worried about taking the 10-day trip over to asia while people are still talking about the midterms and where are the jobs? here's eric cantor, one of the young guns on the republican side who is listening to all of mr. obama's excuses and he has this to say about those. >> when you hear the president say things like, you know, we did a poor job at explaining what we were trying to do, i think that's indicative of his not getting it.
6:11 am
because the voters have had enough of the obama agenda. >> all right. so your question of the day is -- president obama, is he out of touch or just misunderstood? we'd love to hear what you think. >> friends at foxnews.com or twitter us. >> ok. so something that will -- you know, before, we thought that they might actually address it before the midterms. they did not. the congress punted. we want to know what's going to happen to our taxes? you know, will the bush era tax cuts be extended or evaporate, exactly. >> or will americans face a major tax hike come january? >> that's exactly right. we've got both sides, here's the president and the top guy on republican side weighing in on that senate wise. >> i understand the republicans have a different view. and so we are going to have to have a negotiation and i am open to, you know, finding a way in which, you know, they can meet
6:12 am
their principles and i can meet mine. but in order to do that, i think we have to answer the question of how we pay for it. >> i think the issue here is whether you want to raise taxes on small businesses in the middle of what most americans think is a recession. i and all of my members think it's a bad idea to do that. i do sense some flexibility on the president's part and we're happy to talk to him about it. >> looks like he's flexible. the more you think about it, the more you read. >> that's what i'm saying, sending contradictory signals. on wednesday, he came into the press conference the day after the election and said i am willing to compromise on the issue. and then he leaves, he says what he says on "60 minutes" but in the meantime, he tapes his radio address, it tapes on thursday before he leaves for his trip and he says he's not ready for any compromise. i think they are open for compromise because they're going to have to be. >> exactly. they've lost a lot of democrats that didn't lose their election -- the ones in the lame duck
6:13 am
session, at least 40 have said i am not for raising taxes on the people that make over $250,000. >> to answer his question on how you pay for it, spend less, washington. >> coming up straight ahead, california getting its own special bailout from the feds? really? stuart varney on why california's billion dollar blunders are costing the entire country. soon it will be on. he'll be talking. >> those are over his shoulder, picture from his holiday out there. and a whole different kind of fight to the finish and something you don't see very often. nascar jeff gordon going down. look at that. >> yeah! >> whoa! >> straight ahead ♪ express yourself ♪ [ female announcer ] the newest seasonal flavors are here. ♪ express yourself ♪

6:16 am
makes the cold aisle easy. the robitussin relief finder. it's that simple. >> hey, california is borrowing up to $40 million a day to the federal government to pay for unemployment benefits. did you know that? the golden state's debt is already at $86 million and at
6:17 am
this rate threatens to surpass $10 billion by the end of the year. it gets worse every time congress votes to extend unemployment benefits, the debt gets higher for californians. >> look, california has a state fund to pay unemployment benefits for the unemployed in california. it's broke. there's been nothing in it. they've been borrowing from the federal government for the past year and have already borrowed $8 1/2 billion. that soon will hit $10 billion. that's it -- i'm saying that's a form of bailout. an ongoing bailout. on top of other forms of assistance, financial assistance going to california from the feds. they're being bailed out as we speak. you can use another word for it. you can say it's aid to the states. it doesn't matter. it is a bailout. and i want to know, how do the people of nebraska, texas, missouri, how do they feel? >> indiana who -- >> whomsoefr. everybody else in the country has to subsidize a bankrupt state of california. how do we feel about that?
6:18 am
it poses a political dilemma for president obama, i think. >> it's simple dynamics, something has to give. >> they have a structural deficit in california, a $20 billion of year that is not going away any time soon. what are they going to do? the only answer is they need a bailout from the federal government. if they don't get it, they could go into default or they will have to cut back on it so drastically they'll have -- >> another answer would be they can implement some policies that would create some jobs and reduce the number of unemployment. >> they voted against that. they voted in california to keep those super green policies in place which are chasing businesses out of california. they just voted heavily democrat across the board, against the national trend. i think they voted for a bailout. >> they're like the dog that caught the car. now what do you do? >> yeah, what do you do?
6:19 am
>> can't wait to find out what's on your show "varney & company." >> that's what we're talking about, a bailout, yes or no. >> the only show that starts at 20 minutes after the hour. catch "varney & company" over on fox business. >> nice piece of marketing. >> thank you very much. >> you got that market cornered. thank you, sir. straight ahead, look at this puzzle. come to your tv. can you solve it? one "wheel of fortune" contestant did it with one letter. ok. it's an l. what's the rest of it? >> and nancy pelosi is keeping a firm grip on her gavel. so if she does win a new leadership post, does that mean that democrats still don't get it? we'll answer our insider coming up next.

>> all right, quick headlines for you on this monday morning. a taliban spokesman has sent an open letter to u.s. congress claiming americans are not winning the war in afghanistan. the letter also denies the taliban played any role in the september 11th attacks. meanwhile, republican tom foley, the defeated candidate for connecticut governor will announce in a few hours whether he will push for a recount. there were big problems with the election including a missing bag of ballots in one city. that's always a problem. over to you. >> thanks, steve. republican leaders are reacting with a bit of shock to the fact that democrats are considering nancy pelosi for another leadership position. >> well, democratic members in the house are electing nancy pelosi as their leader as if they didn't get the message from the voters this season. this is a woman that i think puts ideology first and there have been no results for the
6:24 am
american people and that seems the direction they want to take again? it doesn't make sense. >> here to debate are our washington insiders, robert winger, former senior staff from the clinton white house and emily miller, former communications director for majority whip tom delay. guys, thanks for joining us this morning. >> thank you for having me. >> hi! >> there was lots of opinions expressed this weekend as whether she should stay or gone. there's certainly precedence for a speaker that loses the majority to stay on in a majority leader role. what do you think? what's your opinion? >> she's done a spectacular job of getting bills through. when people say there were no accomplishments, i don't know what you make of saving the auto industry, of saving the nation from losing 700,000 jobs a month, of wall street reform, of financial institutions, of student loans that were being scooped up by commercial interests and so you take all of this aboard and you need someone who knows and nancy pelosi told me how -- that in 2006 when the
6:25 am
democrats were last in the minority that we stopped the republicans from privatizing and emasculating social security. we'll have to do that again. there's nobody better than nancy pelosi to make that happen. >> we should say she had an accomplishment under her belt. that was a historic loss in the house. from your perspective, do you think all those democrats, and i think we have a graphic that shows how many were actually running against her or don't want her there. many conservative democrats who ran ads against her in the campaign actually lost so this is a chance for them to set the reset button with a new leader but what do you think? do you think they'll take it? >> no, i mean, i think everyone in d.c. is shocked by this development. i mean, nancy pelosi has turned into the single white female of capitol hill and i think president obama will find a boiled rabbit in the oval office soon. she will not go and democrats don't want her. republicans don't want her and i don't know why robert says she has accomplishments. she's lost the house. it's her radical liberal
6:26 am
leadership with cap and tax, with the stimulus bill, with obama care, she ran these things through congress. she also did not extend the bush era tax cuts so everyone's taxes are going to go up on january 1st because of nancy pelosi. she's so unpopular. >> i think that's a good point but robert, i want to ask you in some ways, didn't she really achieve what president obama asked her to do? >> and what she wanted to do. you say obama care, that opposition to obama care, to health care is a myth because half the opposition is people that wanted the bill to be stronger, not less and i think that -- >> why don't we give you the last word, emily. >> first of all, that's not true. most americans are against obama care. they're getting letters in the mail from their insurance company saying their premiums are going up. that's not true. >> that's before the bill. >> yes, nancy pelosi definitely put obama's agenda through congress. the thing is that's not what the american people want. that's why they put the republicans back in charge of the house, to stop obama and
6:27 am
stop his liberal agenda items and they stopped nancy pelosi so she needs to go away. from a republican standpoint, that's why the republican party now has hire pelosi sign on front of their building. >> they want her to stay more than anyone. i'll have to leave it there. thanks for both you coming on. >> thank you. >> we'll see what happens. >> all right. republicans aren't quite ready to give the tea party a leadership role and tea party members aren't taking that quietly. >> we're coming, we're proud, we're strong, we're loud. >> so how will two signs of conservativism come together? then next time you fly, check your own bags. it's coming to an airport near you and we'll explain. and then out of their cars and into each other's faces. you don't see this very often, at least with jeff gordon and the nascar superstar said this fight could have been a lot worse.

>> welcome back. last year, brian kilmeade and i went down to boca and down to del ray beach, florida, where we both were in the chris evert celebrity pro am challenge, where we played tennis with actual celebrities and professional athletes as well. >> this year, you went back. >> i did go back. >> fresh off the tennis courts.
6:32 am
>> were you not invited back? >> i was invited back. it would cost me -- i had to coach three separate games this weekend. i couldn't do it. there you are with buzz collins. >> legendary commentator from cbs and everything else. and i actually wound up calling a game which was a lot of fun. it was pretty daunting. there i am with my daughter sally, bud collins and there's one of my tennis partners, sebastian right there. remember the frenchman who won all those tournaments? it was a lot of fun. >> did he run against chirac? he was your doubles partner? >> he was at one point. there's murphy jensen and john lovitz and chris evert, of course, the grand damme of the court. and the legendary news guy. here's where i was at one point. plus what do you know about umpiring? >> it's a fun time! i heckled jon lovitz for 45 minutes. supposed to be calling the game. >> there's a florida panther and it actually was kind of scary.
6:33 am
>> that's one of my other partners, gigi fernandez with her twins. she's a fantastic player. >> no offense, it looks like those are your twins. >> i took tennis lessons last spring for my first time. >> yeah. >> i'm terrible! >> next year. >> i think you should go. >> no. >> with this event this weekend, they raised $20 million and one other person who i found out is a big fan of "fox & friends" and is watching right now, dan jansen, speed skater. lives in charlotte. >> wow! >> there's elizabeth shue right there. i talked to her husband, her husband is the guy who did the "waiting for superman". >> what did they raise money for? >> chris evert charities. they raised $20 million, giving it to all sorts of families at risk, children at risk throughout florida. wonderful thing. and i am blessed that they would invite me. >> and you really worked on your game this year. >> i really did. >> for a whole year, you were like -- >> his rotator cuff is out.
6:34 am
>> it hurts right here. and i'll tell you who i was practicing with. stuart varney. >> really? >> very good player. >> i know. just ask him. >> all right. >> looking for your headlines now. >> all right, it looks like president obama's trip to indonesia will go on as scheduled tomorrow despite an erupting volcano, mount marapi covering parts of the country with ash leaving 130 people dead. after days of delays, flights to jakarta are back on track. the white house says it will not interfere with the president's itinerary. >> violent weekend near the u.s.-mexico border in juarez near el paso. there are reports that 20 people were murdered. some of the victims killed in separate drug gang shootings, more than 6500 people have been killed in that city in the past two years alone. there was another gruesome murder further south where police found a person's head in a gift wrapped box near a popular sightseeing area. >> are you kidding? >> that's terrible. >> small missouri town banding together to keep controversial westboro baptist church from
6:35 am
protesting outside a soldier's funeral. weekend service for sergeant first class who was killed in afghanistan was lined with giant flags instead of the usual protest signs. when these people found out a protest was scheduled they showed up early, took all the parking spots and overwhelmed the protesters with patriotism. >> great. >> you've seen "the wheel of fortune" right? i used to love watching that show. take a look at how one contestant did with one letter on board. >> i've got a good feeling about this. >> what? >> you're kidding me. >> amazing. her lucky guess won her a trip to the ka caribbean. >> that's fantastic. good for her. come on, big money! come on, big money! all right, let's take a look at what's happening with the dallas cowboys. apparently they forgot there was a game. >> ted has it on camera 1. someone had to give her the answer. you pursue that scandal. are you a journalist? you seemed like one. try to find one and go out with him.
6:36 am
no one can solve with one letter. let me tell you what's happened in football. it's tackle. cowboys didn't know that. they thought it was touch. they're in the middle of their worst season in 20 years. who would figure this? to green bay, where the packers put dallas out of their misery early. tony romo is hurt. aaron rodgers isn't. nailed it for 300 yards. three touchdowns. clay matthews is good. so is his uncle. so is his dad. pick six is here. you'll see it. john kitna, he was open. he hit him. 45-7. they have won three in a row. dallas falls to 1-7. might forfeit the rest of the year. to minnesota, bret favre played up to his 41-year-old ability. vikings down seven with less than a minute left and rallied for two scores in the last five minutes. favre finds his teammate for the 25-yard score. 446 yards passing for bret favre. that's the most he's ever thrown in his 38-year career in overtime. they would win. longwell would hit that one

6:38 am
who took your picture last year. >> they had to buy a new camera after that. >> very nice people. 23 minutes before the top of the hour. is there some disconnect, some friction between the young guns, between the established g.o.p. and the tea party? maybe you can look at the fight for the number 4 spot for the g.o.p. in the house. >> all right. >> michelle bachmann is one. and michelle bachmann is going against gentlemenjed henserling spot. >> that was something that was dished yesterday on "fox news sunday." here's eric cantor. >> we are fortunate in the republican conference to have two good conservatives running for this position. both jeb and michelle have had a reputation as being some of the most commonsense, committed conservative, constitutional conservatives in our conference. and, you know, i've endorsed jeb
6:39 am
because i feel that we've had a history of working together and -- >> yeah, but that's the old boys network. >> we'vead a history of working together and jeb is someone who can produce results. these individuals will be allowed to vote for which conservative that they choose. >> what do you think? >> i think first of all, it's interesting to me watching all the coverage after the election about this fight within the republicans and the tea parties because in some ways, they won. there's no reason to fight anymore. but there are -- and any party goes through leadership elections and the democrats will face one when nancy pelosi decides to run for minority leader so they'll have their internal battle. we'll have our internal battle on the republican side. and i think both of them bring something interesting to the table. i don't think there's so much a disconnect as this happens -- it's not unusual. i want to stress that this happens every time. >> i think heath shuler might be running against nancy pelosi but
6:40 am
he's got all the endorsements. he's even got marsha blackburn and it will be tough for michelle bachmann to get this spot as g.o.p. conference -- the g.o.p. conference chair. >> right. meanwhile, rand paul was on the abc program, i believe, over the weekend and he was talking about how the tea party is co-opting washington, d.c. the establishment. watch this. >> we're coming. we're proud, we're strong, we're loud and we're going to co-opt -- we're already shaping the debate. you hear a lot of talk about the debt now. where do you think that's coming from? >> he's one of the fellas that really benefited by a lot of tea party support. >> real quick, he was very specific. he said let's cut everybody's salary in the federal government 10%. they make $120,000, that's too much. private sector, $60,000. let's look at defense after the wars are over. medicare, social security. so with the leadership that pulls back a little bit. let's not get on the record for
6:41 am

6:48 am
news corp which is the parent of this company and now they're attacking us and trying to run us out of business. >> well, that's absolutely true. over a period of about four years, the soros fund management had about $4 million at one time, ended up with about $2.3 million when they sold it off. and now they're using the cash to simply try to get rid of news corp's fox news and that's exactly what's happening. >> well, and, you know, we were talking around the time of the juan williams firing over at npr. we were talking about how he had invested $1.8 million in npr and he had given media matters which really it seems like their sole purpose is life is try to run them out of business. it looked like george soros was trying to control the media. >> well, he certainly was. and you have to remember, he's got a very good friend in the foundation's c.e.o. whose name

is drummond pike. they go back a long way, soros and pike and i'm pretty sure the only reason that million dollars went to media matters was because drummond pike stepped in because media matters has been trying to get money out of soros for years and he said no. >> it seems incredulous that he would be making money investing in newscorp's stock and turning around and taking the money to try to run a division of news corp out of business. >> well, it does seem incredible but you have to remember cash trumps hypocrisy. it's all about the money as far as he's concerned. >> follow the money and that's what you have done. all right, ron arnold, thank you very much for joining us today from seattle. thank you, sir. >> my pleasure. >> that is a crazy story. meanwhile, how will the republican majority in the house change in white house policy? >> also requires me to make

6:54 am
clinton and harry truman. we're joined by author of this unbelievable book "my fellow americans" michael wolman. welcome. you gave me the d.v.d.'s over the weekend. included in this book, two d.v.d.'s of presidents through history. can the president learn from bill clinton? >> president obama can learn from bill clinton and he can learn from ronald reagan and he can learn from harry truman. they all faced major reverses in midterm elections and it actually in all cases helped them to sharpen and define what they stood for. so there's a lot that can be learned from previous presidents. >> but it's a mindset, too and people like yourself on the inside, the president is definitely stunned after the mid temperatures. you ha -- terms. you have to project a different image. >> it's no fun. you have to go through all different stages. if you do it right, you both have to as bill clinton did find areas of cooperation and areas where you stand your ground and
6:55 am
show people what you believe in and the trick for any president is to do both at the same time. >> how do you find the common ground? do you do it in an interview? do you do it in a speech? do you do it in a meeting? which you're going to have in one week? >> you do it in meetings but maybe unbiased because having been a speechwriter and having a book of presidential speeches, i think there's no substitute for a dramatic speech. something like a state of the union address where you can launch a new direction. you got to actually try to surprise people a little bit. the hard part for president obama is the tax debate is going to be happening in december. there's the lame duck session of congress. the deficit commission, he's not going to have a lot of quiet time for a few months. what would be better for him with a little drama is for people to wonder what's he going to say? >> kind of interesting with truman, this president is in two wars even though we're not talking about it but truman had the korean war. >> right. >> there's a similarity. he might want to crack the history book on that. >> truman lost to congress in
6:56 am
1946 after years of roosevelt who was the greatest of presidential communicators, even now. and truman looked like a very small man but he didn't just attack the congress for being the do nothing congress on his whistle stop tours, actually had a tape of one of those speeches. he also found bipartisan foreign policy in standing up to communism and you do both and you can find yourself suddenly seeming like the president of all the people. >> it's very interesting with truman, so many republicans cite truman and why you think -- wasn't he a democrat but on some foreign policy issues, he sounds like a republican. great job on the book. important for kids to read this book and listen to the d.v.d.'s and c.d.'s. thanks so much for coming in. great insight. coming up straight ahead, president obama about to address the parliament in india. he's trying to sell them on america. we're monitoring the speech and let you know what he said. and randy quaid says he can't return to the u.s. because hollywood star whackers are trying to murder him. and in just a few hours, they'll explain his bizarre story to a

>> good morning. it's november 8, 2010. i'm dana perino in for gretchen carlson. we start with a fox news alert. president obama in the middle of his longest foreign trip yet just moments away from addressing india's parliament where he'll talk jobs and the economy. and we'll bring it to you live. >> those pictures are live. >> yes, they are. >> plus the president gives his first interview since democrats lost the house. does he have any regrets? >> i think that there are times where we said let's just get it done. instead of worrying about how we're getting it done.
7:01 am
>> wow. more on the job he says is "hard to do." >> there you go. >> plus if congress can't compromise by january 1st, taxes were going to go up. can the president and republicans find a common ground before it costs us dough? both sides answer that. "fox & friends" hour 2 for a monday starting right now! >> welcome back, everybody. 1 minute after the top of the hour. dana is in for gretch. we start with a fox news alert. take it away. >> this is brand new video of president obama arriving seconds ago at india's parliament where he is about to speak. wendell goler is live with the latest. wendell? >> well, dana, we'll be listening to the president's words to see if he supports india's call for a permanent seat on the u.n. security council in his address to the indian parliament that happened
7:02 am
just moments from now. the president says he supports an expanded role that supports what he calls the 21st century reality, that india is a growing force both in the global economy and in global security matters as well. it's the reason for closer u.s. ties with india which, of course, is the reason for this trip. after focusing almost exclusively on trade for the first day or so, the president and first lady actually got to see a couple of sights here including the monument to gandhi where he was created. and the 16th century tomb of the country's second mogul emperor but since then, it's been back to business meeting with india's prime minister, both one on one and in a larger group that included several u.s. cabinet secretaries. mr. obama pushing expanded trade and as much as he has criticized outsourcing, he is fighting a perception that india is a country of call centers with what used to be american jobs. this is a bit of what he had to say. >> i don't think you heard me
7:03 am
make outsourcing a course of my visit. i specifically said in my address in mumbai to the business council that i think both countries are operating on some stereotypes that have outlived their usefulness. what i've seen is that our countries are matched up in a way that allows for enormous win-win potential. >> in his speech to parliament, the president will also announce the end of some u.s. export restrictions on civilian space and defense technology that have existed pretty much since the cold war. dana, guys, back to you. >> thanks a lot, wendell. a lot happening in india as the president embarks on that trip and it allows us to keep us in the time zone. >> young asian man, you've seen this, who boarded a flight to canada was disguised as an elderly white man. he was expected to appear before
7:04 am
a judge in vancouver for a detention hearing. he boarded an air canada plane in hong kong wearing a silicone mask. he removed the mask in the airplane bathroom after the plane took off. canadian officials say he doesn't appear to have any terrorist ties but u.s. secretary of homeland security, janet napolitano says she is concerned by the breach. >> today, top u.s. defense officials are saying afghanistan should be ready to handle its own security by the year 2014. defense secretary robert gates and joint chief of staff chairman admiral mike mullin both asking nato to endorse the 2014 timeline for withdraw proposed by the afghan president karzai. the white house says president obama will consider that timeline with other native allies when they meet in portugal later this month. in the trial for elizabeth smart's kidnap certificaper is resume this morning. the defense claimed it couldn't get a fair trial in utah and an appellate court rejected that request and elizabeth smart herself is expected to return from her church mission to

testify as early as today. actor randy quaid has an immigration hearing in canada today where he'll try to convince officials that he must stay there because his life is in danger. quaid and his wife are wanted in california on vandalism charges. they claim a group of "hollywood star whackers" is out to kill them and take their money. the actor's wife can stay in canada no matter what happens at the hearing because her father is canadian. those are your headlines. that's a bizarre story. >> a little weird. >> now i'm sitting -- i don't think there will be another vacation movie until he gets the situation under control. >> unless they actually -- unless chevy chase goes to canada. >> all right. meanwhile, the president of the united states is as dana was talking and wendell as well were talking is over in india. he's going to be addressing the parliament live shortly. we will take you to that. nonetheless, before we go on that big 747 of his and headed over there, he sat down with steve croft from "60 minutes." he grilled him pretty good about the economy and said so were the
7:06 am
midterms a referendum on you and the president responded? no, it was a referendum on the economy. also, there was a lot of talk about the health care reform in the country and the president, here's a snippet of it blames the republican party for the health care that eventually passed. watch this. >> i made the decision to go ahead and do it and it proved as costly politically as we expected. probably actually a little bit more costly than we expected politically. >> in what ways? >> partly because i couldn't get the kind of cooperation from republicans that i had hoped for. we thought that if we shaped a bill that wasn't that different from bills that had previously been introduced by republicans, including a republican governor in massachusetts who is now running for president, that, you know, we would be able to find some common ground there. and we just couldn't. >> there he is taking a shot at mitt romney. that was a program for a state not for a nation.
7:07 am
>> that's true. i think it's interesting that president obama decided to take a shot at a possible republican contender two days after the midterm elections because he probably is trying to drag governor romney down into the muck with him and ended up, mitt romney hasn't even announced he's running for president. i think that was a little bit of a shot. >> to say the american people don't understand the health care bill. he even wrote hundreds of speeches on this health care bill, in particular, telling how bad we need it and what he's going to do and then he releases a bill with over 2,000 pages that no one has read. in the short time they had to sign it and also when you look at it, how much it's going to cost the economy. people still up in the air about what it is because he didn't write it. >> plus he -- when he talks about that he couldn't get cooperation from republicans. cooperation isn't necessarily republicans capitulating to what you want. it would be reaching out and saying you have some good ideas. the fact that they couldn't figure out a way to pick off one or two republicans so they could focus on a bipartisan bill is astounding to me.
7:08 am
he's right, when he talks about that he -- that they -- how they lost politically, the biggest thing was the house of representatives. and that's historic. 62 seats that they lost. and i don't know if all the races are finished being counted yet. but to lose historically, that is really what it took. >> biggest loss by any one party in 71 years. >> yeah. >> so you can't spin that. at 7 minutes after the hour, the president was thinking about what he might have done wrong and how hard it was being the candidate as opposed to being the president. let's listen. >> i think that there are times where we said let's just get it done. instead of worrying about you on we're getting it done and i think that's a problem. i'm paying a political price for that. when you're campaigning, i think you're liberated to say things without thinking about how am i going to actually practically implement this? >> do you think you were naive? >> no, i don't think i was naive. i just think that these things are hard to do. >> they are hard to do much at
7:09 am
one point, the president again last night said leadership isn't just legislation. it's persuading people so once again, he's gone back to the argument that i think he made in a magazine a while back where, you know, we had some problems with our messaging. we did some great stuff but didn't sell it right. >> right. they don't think it's their policies. people don't understand what they're trying to do for everybody across america and i also find it amazing that to admit two years later that he basically ran on a campaign for issues that he didn't have any idea if he was going to be able to get them done and now he's saying it's hard. >> i can't do it. i know i promised that but -- >> the people who got him elected were the ones that would be new to the white house. he still has to send experienced people that really let him down in the last two years. a the lot of them will resign. when this word got out to the next majority leader of the house, erai eric cantor and how
7:10 am
was explaining his midterm election loss, here's what he said. >> to hear the president say things like we did a poor job of explaining what we were trying to do, i think that's indicative of his not getting it. because the voters have had enough of the obama agenda. >> in some ways, i have to say from the republican perspective, maybe it's good they don't get it. because then -- >> they'll keep on keeping on. >> head into the 2012 and the republican candidate will probably do quite well. >> when you hear eric cantor say that, you start to think, ok, maybe the accusation that this white house is tone deaf to what the people of the united states think and want, maybe there's something to that. >> yeah. see, i feel differently. i feel like we can't waste two years of everyone doing the same thing, staying in their lanes. there's got to be something happening. meanwhile, we have to ask you this question. out of touch or misunderstood? do you think the president is on to something when he said he's got to message better or out of touch by saying he's got to message better?
7:11 am
what do you think? friends at foxnews.com and i've got the password twitter.com/fox and friends. they're leaning one direction. when we go over it, you'll see. >> what's going to happen to our taxes, the big question. the bush era tax cuts are supposed to sunset at the conclusion of this year. the president kind of in the "60 minutes" interview sounded like maybe i'm ready to do some talking. here's some give and take by the sides. >> i understand the republicans have a different view. and so we are going to have to have a negotiation and i am open to, you know, finding a way in which, you know, they can meet their principles and i can meet mine. but in order to do that, i think we do have to answer the question of how we pay for it. >> i think the issue here is whether you want to raise taxes on small businesses.
7:12 am
>> we told you we were going to take you to president obama speaking right now to india's parliament in new delhi. let's take a listen. >> i thank you for the great honor of addressing the representatives of more than 1 bi [applause] >> bring the greetings and friendship of the world's oldest democracy. the united states of america. including nearly three million proud and patriotic indian-americans. over the past three days, my wife michelle and i have experienced the beauty and dynaism of india and its people from the majesty of the tomb to

7:14 am
i am not the first american president to visit india. nor will i be the last. but i am proud to visit india so early in my presidency. it's no coincidence that india is my first stop on a visit to asia or that this has been my longest visit to another country since becoming president. for in asia and around the world, india is not simply emerging. india has emerged. and it is my firm belief that the relationship between the united states and india bound by our shared interests and our shared values will be one of the defining partnerships of the
7:15 am
21st century. this is the partnership that i've come here to build. this is the vision that our nations could realize together. my confidence in our shared future is grounded in my respect for india's treasured past. a civilization that's been shaping the world for thousands of years. indians unlock the intricacies of the human body and the vastness of our universe. it's no exaggeration to say our information age is rooted in indian innovations including the number 0. india -- of course, india not only opened our minds. she expanded our moral imaginations. with religious text that still summoned the faithful to lives of dignity and discipline, with poets who imagined the future
7:16 am
where the mind is without fear and the head is held high. and with a man whose message of love and justice endures, the father of your nation. for me and michelle, this visit, therefore, held special meaning. my wife including my work as a young man on behalf of the urban force, i've always found inspiration in the life of gandhi and his simple and profound lesson to be the change we seek in the world. and just -- just as he summoned indians to seek their destiny, he influenced champions of equality in my own country including a young preacher named
7:17 am
martin luther king. after making his pilgrimage to india a half century ago, dr. king called gandhi's philosophy of nonviolent resistance the only logical and moral approach in the struggles for justice and progress. so we were honored to visit the residence where gandhi and king both stayed. and we were humbled to pay our respects and i am mindful that i might not be standing before you today as president of the united states had it not been for gandhi and the message he shared and inspired with america and the world. [applause]
7:18 am
an ancient civilization of science and fundamentalism, this is the sturdy foundation upon which you have built ever since that stroke of midnight when the tricolor was raised over a free and independent india. and despite the skeptics who said this country was simply too poor or too fast or too diverse to succeed, you surmounted overwhelming odds and became a model to the world. instead of slipping into starvation, you launched a green revolution that fed millions. instead of becoming dependent on commodities and exports, you invested in science and technology. and in your greatest resource, the indian people. and the world sees the results
7:19 am
from the super computer you built to the indian flag you put on the moon. instead of resisting the global economy, you became one of its engines. reforming the licensing and unleashing an economic marvel that's lifted tens of millions of people from poverty and created one of the world's largest middle classes. instead of succumbing to division, you have shown that the strength of india, the very idea of india is its embrace of all colors, all casts, all creeds. it's the diversity represented in this chamber today. it's the richness of faith celebrated by a visitor to my hometown of chicago more than a century ago. the renounced swami.
7:20 am
he said that holiness, purity and charity are not the exclusive possessions of any church in the world and that every system has produced men and women of the most exalted character. and instead of being lured by the false notion that progress must come at the expense of freedom, you built the institutions upon which true democracy depends. free and fair elections which enabled citizens to choose their own leaders without recourse to arms. an independent judiciary and the rule of law which allows people to address their grievances. and the thriving free press and vibrant civil society which allows every voice to be heard. this year as india marks 60 years with a strong and democratic constitution, the lesson is clear. india succeeded not in spite of
7:21 am
democracy, india has succeeded because of democracy. just as india has changed, so, too, has the relationship between our two nations. in the decades after independence, india advanced its interests as a leader of the movement. yet too often the united states and india found ourselves on opposite sides of a north-south divide. estranged by a long cold war. those days are over. here in india, two successive governments led by different parties have recognized that deeper partnership with america is both natural and necessary and in the united states, both of my predecessors, one a democrat and one a republican worked to bring us closer,
7:22 am
leading to increased trade and a landmark civil nuclear agreement. so since that time, people in both of our countries have asked, what's next? how can we build on this progress? and realize the full potential of our partnership? that's what i want to address today. the future that the united states seeks in an interconnected world and why i believe that india is indispensable to this vision. how we can forge a truly global partnership. want just at one or two areas but across many. not just for mutual benefit but for the benefit of the world. of course, only indians can determine india's national interests and how to advance them on the world stage but i
7:23 am
stand before you today because i am convinced that the interest of the united states and the interest we share with india are best advanced in partnership. i believe that. the united states seeks security, the security of our country, allies and partners. we seek prosperity, a strong and growing economy in an open international economic system. we seek respect for universal values. and we seek a just and sustainable international order that promotes peace and security by meeting global challenges through stronger global cooperation. now, to advance these interests, i have committed the united states to comprehensive engagement with the world based on mutual interests and mutual respect. and a central pillar of this engagement is forging deeper
7:24 am
cooperation with 21st century centers of influence and that must necessarily include india. now, india is not the only emerging power in the world. but relationships between our countries is unique. for we are two strong democracies whose constitutions begin with the same words. the same revolutionary words. "we the people". we are two great republics dedicated to the liberty and justice a justi justice and equality of all people and we are two free market economies where people have the freedom to pursue ideas and innovation that can change the world. and that's why i believe that india and america are indispensable partners in meeting the challenges of our times. since taking office, i've
7:25 am
therefore made our relationship a priority. i was proud to welcome prime minister singh for the first official state visit of my presidency. for the first time ever, our governments are working together across a whole range of common challenges that we face. and let me say it as clearly as i can, the united states not only welcomes india as a global power, we fervently support it and we have worked to help make it a reality. together, with our partners, we have made g-20 the premier forum for international economic cooperation bringing more voices to the table of global economic decision making and that has included india. we've increased the role of emerging economies like india at international financial institutions. we've valued india's important role at copenhagen where for the first time, all major economies
7:26 am
committed to take action to confront climate change. and to stand by those actions. we salute india's long history as a leading contributor to the united nations peacekeeping missions. and we welcome india as it prepared to take its seat on the united nations security council. in short, with india assuming its rightful place in the world, we have a historic opportunity to make the relationship between our two countries a defining partnership of a century ahead and i believe we can do so by working together in three important areas. first, as global partners, we can promote prosperity in both our countries. together, we can create the
7:27 am
high-tech high wage jobs of the future. with my visit, we are now ready to begin implementing our civil nuclear agreement. this will help meet india's growing energy needs and create thousands of jobs in both of our countries. we need to forge partnerships in high-tech sectors like defense and civil space. so we've removed indian organizations from our so-called enti enemy list and we'll work to reform our controls on exports. both of those steps will ensure that indian companies seeking high-tech trade in technologies from america are treated the same as our very closest allies and partners. we can pursue joint research and development to create green jobs. give india more access to

cleaner, affordable energy. meet the commitments we made at copenhagen. and show the possibilities of low carbon growth. and together, we can resist the protectionism that stifles growth and innovation. the united states remains and will continue to remain one of the most open economies in the world. and by opening markets and reducing barriers to foreign investment, india can realize its full economic potential as well. as g-20 partners, we can make sure the global economic recovery is strong and is durable. and we can keep striving for a round that is ambitious and is balanced with the courage to make compromises that are necessary so global trade works for all economies. together, we can strengthen agriculture, cooperation between indian and american researchers and scientists sparked the green revolution.
7:29 am
today, india is a leader in using technology to empower farmers like those i met yesterday who get free updates on market and weather conditions on their cell phones. and the united states is a leader in agricultural productivity and research. now, as farmers in rural areas face the effects of climate change and drought, we'll work together to spark a second more sustainable ever green revolution. today, we're improving indian weather forecasting systems before the next monsoon season. we aim to help millions of indian farmers -- farming households save water and increase productivity, increase food processing so crops don't spoil on the way to market and enhance climate and crop forecasting to avoid losses that cripple communities and drive up food prices. as part of our security initiative, we're going to share india's expertise with farmers in africa.
7:30 am
and this is an indication of india's rise, that we can now export hard-earned expertise to countries that see indians as a model for agricultural development. it's another powerful example of how america and indian partnership can address an urgent global challenge. because the wealth of the nation also depends on the health of its people. we'll continue to support india's effort against the diseases like tuberculosis and h.i.v. aids and as global partners, we'll work to improve global health at preventing the spread of pandemic flu. and because knowledge is the currency of the 21st century, we will increase exchanges between our students, our colleges and our universities which are among the best in the world. as we work to advance our share of prosperity, we can partner to address a second power and
7:31 am
that's our shared security. in mumbai, i met with the courageous families and survivors of that barbaric attack and here in parliament, which was itself targeted because of the democracy it represents, we honor the memory of all those who have been taken from us. including american citizens on 2611 and indian citizens on 9/11. this is a bond that we share. that's why we insist that nothing ever justifies the slaughter of innocent men, women and children. it's why we're working together more closely than ever to prevent terrorist attacks and to deepen our cooperation even further. and it's why a strong and resilient societies, we refuse to live in fear. we will not sacrifice the values and rule of law that define us
7:32 am
and we will never waiver in the defense of our people. america's fight against al-qaida and its terrorist affiliates is why we persevere in afghanistan where major development assistance from india has improve the lives of the afghan people. we're making progress in our mission to break the taliban's momentum and to train afghan forces so they can take the lead for their security. while i have made it clear that american forces will begin the transition to afghan responsibility next summer, i've also made it clear that america's commitments to the afghan people will endure. the united states will not abandon the people of afghanistan or the region to violent extremists who threaten us all. our strategy to disrupt and dismantle and defeat al-qaida and its affiliates has to succeed on both sides of the border.
7:33 am
and that's why we have worked with the pakistani government to address the threat of terrorist networks in the border region. the pakistani government increasingly recognizes that these networks are not just a threat outside of pakistan, they are threat to the pakistani people as well. suffered greatly at the hands of violent extremists over the last several years. and we will continue to insist to pakistan's leaders that terrorist safe havens in their borders are unacceptable and terrorists hin the mumbai attacks must be brought to justice. [applause] >> we must also recognize that all of us have an interest in both afghanistan and a pakistan that is stable and prosperous and democratic. and india has an interest in
7:34 am
that as well. in pursuit of regional security, we will continue to welcome dialogue between india and pakistan. even as we recognize the disputes between your two countries can only be resolved by the people of your two countries. more broadly, india and the united states can partner in asia. today, the united states is once again playing a leadership role in asia. strengthening old alliances, deepening relationships as we're doing with china and we're reengaging with places like organizing the east asia summit, orp organizations where india is also a partner. just like your partners, we want india to increase security and prosperity of all our nations. as two global leaders, the
7:35 am
united states and india can partner for global security, especially as india serves on the security council over the next two years. indeed, the just and sustainable international order that america seeks includes a united nations that is efficient, effective, credible, and legitimate. that is why i can say today in the years ahead, i look forward to a reformed united nations security council that includes india as a permanent member. now, let me suggest that with increased power comes increased responsibility. the united nations exists to fulfill its founding ideals of
7:36 am
preserving peace and security, promoting global cooperation and advancing human rights. these are the responsibilities of all nations but especially those that seek to lead in the 21st century. and so we look forward to working with india and other nations that aspire to security council membership to ensure that the security council is effective. that resolutions are implemented. that sanctions are enforced. that we strengthen the international norms which recognize the rights and responsibilities of all nations and all individuals. this includes our responsibility to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons. since i took office, the united states has reduced the role of nuclear weapons in our national security strategy. and we've agreed with russia to reduce our own arsenals. we've put preventing nuclear proliferation and nuclear
7:37 am
terrorism at the top of our nuclear agenda. and we have strengthened the corner stone of the global nonproliferation regime, the nuclear nonproliferation treaty. together, the united states can pursue our goal of securing the world's vulnerable nuclear materials. we can make it clear that even as every nation has the right to peaceful nuclear energy, every nation must also meet its international obligations and that includes the islamic republic of iran. and together, we can pursue a vision that indian leaders have espoused since independence, a world without nuclear weapons. and this leads me to the final area where our countries can partner. strengthening the foundations of democratic governments, not only at home but abroad. in the united states, my
7:38 am
administration has worked to make government more open and transparent and accountable to people. here in india, you're harnessing technologys to do the same as i saw yesterday at an expo in mumbai. your landmark right to information act is empowering citizens with the ability to get the services to which they're entitled. and to hold officials accountable. voters can get information about candidates by text message. and you're delivering education and health services to rural communities as i saw yesterday when i joined with villagers. now, in a new collaboration on government, our two countries are going to share our experience, identify what works, and develop the next generation of tools to empower citizens. in another example of how american and indian partnership
7:39 am
can address global challenges, we're going to share these innovations with civil society groups and countries around the world. we're going to show that democracy more than any other form of government, delivers for the common man and woman. likewise, when indians voted, the whole world watches. thousands of political parties, hundreds of thousands of polling centers. millions of candidates. and poll workers and 700 million voters. there's nothing like it on the planet. there is so much that countries transitioning to democracy can learn from india's experience. so much expertise that india can share with the world. and that, too, is what is possible when the world's largest democracy embraces its role as a global leader.
7:40 am
the world's two largest democracies, we must never forget that the price of our own freedom is standing up for the freedom of others. indians know this for it is the story of your nation. before he ever began his struggles for indian independence, gandhi stood up for the rights of indians in south africa. just as others including the united states supported indian independence. india championed the self-determination of peoples from africa to asia as they, too, broke free from colonialism. and along with the united states, you've been a leader in supporting democratic development and civil society groups around the world. and this, too, is part of india's greatness.
7:41 am
now, we all understand every country will follow its own path, no one nation has a monopoly on wisdom and no nation should ever try to impose its values on another. but when people, democratic movements are suppressed as they have been in burma, for example, then the democracies of the world cannot remain silent. for it is unacceptable to gun down peaceful protesters and incarcerate political prisoners decade after decade. it is unacceptable to hold the aspirations of an entire people hostage to the greed and paranoia of bankrupt regimes. it is unacceptable to steal elections as the regime in burma has done again for all the world to see. faced with such gross violations of human rights is the responsibility of the international community especially leaders like the united states and india.
7:42 am
to condemn it. and if i can be frank in international forum, india has often shied away from some of these issues but speaking up for those who cannot do so for themselves is not interfering in the affairs of other countries. it's not violating the rights of sovereign nations, it is staying true to our democratic principles. it is giving meaning to the human rights that we say are universal. and it sustains progress that in asia and around the world has helped turn dictatorships into democracies and ultimately increased our security in the world. so promoting shared prosperity. preserving peace and security. strengthening democratic governance and human rights, these are the responsibilities of leadership.
7:43 am
and as global partners, this is the leadership that the united states and india can offer in the 21st century. ultimately, though, this cannot be a relationship only between presidents and prime ministers. or in the halls this parliament. ultimately, this must be a partnership between our peoples. so i want to conclude by speaking directly to the people of india who are watching today. in your lives, you have overcome odds that might have overwhelmed a lesser country. in just decades, you have achieved progress and development that took other nations centuries. you are now assuming your rightful place as a leader among nations. your parents and grandparents
7:44 am
imagined this. your children and grandchildren will look back on this. but only this generation of indians can seize the possibilities of the moment. as you carry on with the hard work ahead, i want every indian citizen to know the united states of america will not simply be cheering you on from the sidelines. we will be right there with you shoulder to shoulder. because we believe in the promise of india and we believe that the future is what we make it, we believe that no matter who you are or where you come from, every person can fulfill their god given potential just as someone who could lift himself up and pen the words of
7:45 am
the constitution that protects the rights of all indians. we believe that no matter where you live, whether a village in punjab or the bylanes, an old section of calcutta or a new high rise in bangalore, every person deserves the same chance to live in security and dignity. to get an education. to find work, to give their children a better future. and we believe that when countries and cultures put aside old habits and attitudes that keep people apart, when we recognize our common humanity, then we can begin to fulfill these aspirations that we share. it's a simple lesson contained in a collection of stories that
7:46 am
has guided indians for centuries. and it's the spirit of inscriptions seen by all who enter this great hall that one is mind and the other is the concepts of little minds but to the large hearted, the world itself is their family. this is the story of india. this is the story of america. that despite their differences, people can see themselves in one another. and work together and succeed together as one proud nation. and it can be the spirit of partnership between our nations that even as we honor the histories which in different times kept us apart, even as we preserve what makes us unique in a globalized world, we can
7:47 am
recognize how much we can achieve together. and if we let this simple concept be our guide, if we pursue the vision i've described today, a global partnership to meet global challenges, then i have no doubt that future generations, indians and americans will live in a world that is more prosperous and more secure and more just because of the bonds our generation has forged today. so thank you. >> all right. you're looking live as the members of parliament stand up for an ovation for the president of the united states. it was supposed to run about 20 minutes. it ran about 35 minutes. one of the headlines is that he is backing a permanent seat for india on the united nations security council that. would mean somebody would have to get bailed off. >> here is an author, you also were born in india and author of "the roots of obama's rage." what about the message that the
7:48 am
people of india received from the president? is it something they wanted to hear? >> i think the part about india serving on the u.n. on the security council, that will be a welcomed step. india sees itself as an emerging power, of course, the biggest power in the neighborhood is china. and i think america has a unique opportunity to make an alliance with india in part, block the growing power of china. so i think that's a good thing to come out of the obama visit. the big story that obama is missing, of course, is the huge indian entrepreneural revolution. obama keeps talking about gandhi, we went to the gandhi museum and gandhi movement. he keeps championing gandhi but the indians are moving away from gandhi. gandhi wanted small, primitive villages to be self-sufficient and producing their own stuff, handmade textiles, this kind of thing and india is in a technological boom and entrepreneural boom, obama would have done well to embrace that. he didn't do that. >> let me ask you this, in doing
7:49 am
our midterm elections, president obama has talked a lot about how our companies should be blocked or prevented from sending jobs overseas. i imagine people in india followed his remarks very closely during the campaign. how tricky was it for him to walk that line today? >> when obama was elected, he was a huge hero all over asia. in indonesia, they built a statue for him in a park in jakarta. that statue interestingly was taken down because 50,000 indonesians said obama doesn't care about asia. even the inians are very nervous because india's prosperity depends on global economy, depends on free trade. depends on outsourcing and a lot of democrats were attacking outsourcing so obama is in a little bit of a precarious position and had to try to pretend to take something of that back and he turns around and lectures indians about carbon and about environment. they need more carbon. can't grow as an economy without using more energy. >> well received, though, by the parliament. that his speech was well
7:50 am
received. >> i think the indians are the most pro american people in the world. obama has a great opportunity to do that if he'll take it. >> lucky you were here. >> indeed. always a pleasure. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> all right straight ahead on this monday telecast, he lost both his legs on patrol in fallujah serving his country and today he has just been elected state representative from minnesota. you will meet him next. on this day in 1981, number one song in america "private eyes" by hall & oates. vegetables have important vitamins and minerals that can really help protect you. and v8 juice gives you three of your five daily servings. powerful, right? v8. what's your number?
7:51 am
7:52 am
7:53 am
au >> welcome back on this monday morning. he lost his legs and two buddies to a roadside explosion in iraq. no one expected him to survive. in fact, he actually died three times on the operating table. >> just four years later, former
7:54 am
staff sergeant is claiming viktdry as a minnesota state representative and says he'll bring the experience he learned from war to politics and he's the author of the book "still standing" we recommend it highly. john kriesel joins us right now. thank you so much for being here. >> thank you. >> tell me a little bit about your path to victory. how quick did you decide to run for office when you found out the seat was going to be open? >> i decided back in january that i would run. it was a unique opportunity and i think the way things were headed, i decided that, you know what? it's time for me to get involved and serve my community again in a different -- in a different way. >> staff sergeant, when you go to st. paul to represent your district, what will you take that you learned on the field of war to the state capital. i mean, what important lessons did you learn from the military? >> well, you know, no matter what, i worked with the diverse
7:55 am
group of guys from all around minnesota and from different part of the country. we didn't ask each other what city you're from, what's your political party? whatever that stuff. whatever the mission was, we worked to get the job done. that's what we need at the skst capital and that's why i ran and i think that's why i won. >> you thought the health care bill passed last year would not be good for veterans. tell me a little bit about that and what you could do in minnesota to turn that around. >> well, i didn't think it would be good for the country as a whole because of the cost of it and things like that. but as a retired -- as a service connected disability retiree, i received tricare through the military so i have my health coverage due to military and due to v.a. and it doesn't look like it will be affected a great deal as of right now that i could
7:56 am
find. so i'm optimistic that things are going to stay the same and that i'll continue to have good coverage for me and for my family as well. >> staff sergeant, from where you sit, and we've been asking people this over the last six days, what was the message of the midterm elections nationally? >> well, nationally, i think people just -- they wanted to make real change. i think they were tired of the direction that the government was headed. they felt that they didn't have a voice or that they weren't being listened to and so people definitely got involved a lot more than they had been in the past and made their voice loud and clear. >> well, your voice will be heard loud and clearly in st. paul sooner. staff sergeant, thank you so much for joining us. >> and congratulations. >> thank you guys. looking forward to serving again now. >> thank you. >> all right. so he's won massive jackpots. seven separate times. and he says winning the lotto is about more than just luck.
7:57 am
he's here with tips to help you win that, too. >> excellent. plus he got past airport security. will he make it past a judge? the man boarded a plane as an old man, then we discovered he was a young man ordered into court. that story is straight ahead. you want some fiber one honey clusters? yeah. you must really care about him. what? no, no. you gave him fiber. no she didn't. this tastes way too good to be be they're delicio crunchy usters with sweet honey and half a day's worth of fiber. you care about my fiber? not really. i care about your fiber too. i have for a while. ok, carl. why don't you care about her fiber? hey carl. [ male announcer ] fiber one. cardboard no. delicious yes.
7:58 am
7:59 am
8:00 am
>> dana: good morning, it's monday, november 8, 2010. i'm dana perino in for gretchen carlson. the president gets his first interview since democrats lost the house, but does he have any regrets? >> i think that there are times where we said, let's just get it done instead of worrying about how we're getting it done. >> dana: more on the job he says is, quote, hard to do. >> steve: regret, he has a few. then new jersey governor chris christie goes after a talk show host, calling him an aged voting for democrats, we'll show you the firey exchange promptly. >> brian: that should be good. has he cracked the lottery code?
8:01 am
the man who hit the jackpot seven separate times here to share his secret. >> steve: does he print his own tickets. >> brian: he comes whenever he wants to. "fox & friends" starts now. >> steve: one of our regular monday morning friends is dana perino, she joins us on monday. usually via satellite from washington, d.c., but today she's on the couch in for gretch. thanks for coming by. >> dana: i love it. >> brian: just because your assignment wasn't to watch the sunday shows, didn't mean you didn't. we've got a lot of your insight during the first two hours. >> dana: you were almost belong away by my insights. we start with fox news alert. radical muslim cleric anwar al-awlaki released in a new video urging new terrorists to kill americans. the 23 minute rant, which we are choosing not to show, is
8:02 am
appearing on a radical islamic web site. the u.s. believes he's believed to be hiding in yemen. authorities there sent troops to his hometown and ordered him captured dead or alive. another breaking story out of italy where amanda knox was indicted on slander charges, accused of slandering italian police in the wake of her arrest, saying they beat her. she was convicted of killing her british roommate and sentenced to 26 years behind bars. a young asian man who boarded a flight to canada disguised as an elderly white man expected to appear today before a judge in vancouver. that will be a detention hearing. the unidentified man boarded an air canada plane in hong kong wearing a silicone mask. he removed it in the bathroom after the plane took off. canadian security officials say he doesn't appear to have any terrorist tie, but u.s. secretary of homeland security january january -- janet
8:03 am
napolitano is concerned by the breach. new michael jackson song was just posted on his official web site overnight. it's called "breaking news." ♪ # ♪ >> dana: some people are already questioning whether that's really jackson's voice, but several experts and insiders say it is definitely him. there is a new album of songs coming out december 14. everybody, you can get that for your family for christmas. >> steve: if you're a jackson fan. >> brian: three minutes after the top of the hour. president before he went to india and as you know, he's going to indonesia after. >> steve: that volcano is not going to slow him down. >> brian: i think they were concerned about the aviation challenges. but now they're talking about the president's interview with steve croft and talks to him all the time after big moments. he talked to him as a candidate,
8:04 am
after he won, and now after he got shellacked, to use his term. his party lost more power in the house, more seats in the house and senate than any party has lost in 71 years. you think the president got the message, that he's got to change his ways. you make the call. >> i made the decision to go ahead and do it and it proved as costly politically as we expected, probably actually a little more costly than we expected politically. >> in what ways? >> partly because i couldn't get the kind of cooperation from republicans that i had hoped for. we thought that if we shaped a bill that wasn't that different from bills that had previously been introduced by republicans, including the republican governor in massachusetts, who is now running for president, that we would be able to find some common ground there. we just couldn't. >> steve: wait a minute. he's taking a shot at mitt
8:05 am
romney and what they did with romney. let's call it romney care there. but there is a difference between doing something on a state level and the national level. >> dana: and that's true. a lot of peel forget that. but there is a major lawsuit is underway that many states attorneys general have filed and it is precisely to that point. that states are allowed to do something, but the federal government is not allowed to -- >> steve: states can mandate. >> dana: that's what that lawsuit is all about. that was moving throughout courts. we'll see how that plays into it. it's interesting when he talks about not being able to get the cooperation. part of leadership is persuasion as well. when he first came to power, he was extremely popular, had major majorities and everybody wants to be around you when you're 65 to 75% popular. and then he couldn't get anybody to buy into some of his legislative initiatives either on the stimulus or on health care, or financial regulatory reform. i think shows more than just an inability to communicate. it shows an inability to lead.
8:06 am
>> brian: it looks like the republicans not only are not going to get on board are health care, they're going to look to defund it and stop it and with all these gop governors and the responsibility on these states to pay these health care cost, you know they're going to hop on those lawsuits and that's going to go right to the supreme court. >> dana: in addition to that, what we haven't talked about is everybody's focus on how he lost the house and lost many states in the senate. but we don't talk about as much is that 680 republicans were elected to state legislative states nationwide. those people are even closer to that constituency than people in congress. so they have a vested interest to make sure things turn around. >> steve: when the president was elected, when obama was elected in 2008, there was a democrat wave. there were a number -- >> dana: not a wave. >> steve: a lot of people down the ballot benefited by the fact that -- >> dana: they rode on his coat tails. >> steve: and a lot of people voted for him because they wanted that hope and change he was promising. well, last night on 60 minute,
8:07 am
we heard the president say that he didn't know exactly how to follow through on some promises. huh? >> i think that there are times where we said, let's just get it done instead of worrying about how we're getting it done. i think that's a problem. i paid a political price for that. when you're campaigning, i think you're liberated to say things without thinking about okay, how am i going to actually practically implement it. >> do you think you were naive? >> no, i just think that these things are hard to do. >> brian: you're in the wings right now, you're working for the president. what would you say to him after this interview? >> dana: no one takes my advice anymore. >> steve: we're listening to you. >> dana: i don't think he has to talk to steve croft immediately after each thing. he gave a good speech in india. let that stand. i think it's interesting when he says that it's easy to say things as a candidate, but now
8:08 am
things are harder to do. i also think it goes back to something else, a fundamental misread of the electorate and where people stand. we are a center right country. they didn't take that into consideration and now are almost offended that people are not smart enough to understand. >> brian: your advice would be don't do that? >> dana: i would have him step back. you don't have to do interviews all the time. he also sent contradictory messages. wednesday he said, i'm willing to compromise on the extension of the bush tax cuts. >> brian: that was friday. >> dana: that was friday. saturday, in his radio address, he says he is not willing to compromise. sunday, now he's probably going to say that he is. it's just confusing for people. >> steve: sure. it's interesting from the sound bite we ran, essentially he has adopted the larry the cable guy excuse. just get er done. eric cantor, who will be the majority leader in the house of representatives come january, he's not believing all of obama's excuses.
8:09 am
he just doesn't buy them. listen. >> when you hear the president say things like, we did a poor job at explaining what we were trying to do, i think that that's indicative of his not getting it because the voters have had enough of the obama agenda. >> steve: we asked you about the obama agenda, whether or not he was out of touch or just misunderstood and we got a number of e-mails. >> dana: john in montgomery, texas says obama is absolutely out of touch. a good ceo listens to employee, although he doesn't always follow their suggestions. the president is ignoring those who oppose his philosophy. >> brian: jerry from new jersey says, i don't feel that president obama is that in touch or misunderstood as a president, he wants to leave a big foot print on one term. >> steve: from trish, she says, he is all too well understood by the many of us who see through his facade to his true agenda. >> dana: this is shirley in michigan. he's completely out of touch.
8:10 am
he can never take any blame for anything. it's always somebody else's fault. >> brian: dino on twitter, he writes, does obama ever say i was wrong. remember happy days where fonzie couldn't ever say that? >> steve: the word can't come out of his lips. if you were watching meet the press yesterday you saw an interesting exchange between chris christie and david gregory, the host. listen to this when christy said that mr. gregory was advocating a democrat talking point. >> you know, i've been watching you for weeks talk about extending the bush tax cut, it drives me crazy. this is about maintaining the current tax structure in a time where we have a very weak economy. >> it still has to be offset. >> listen. and i'm not disagreeing with you, david, but what i'm disagreeing with you is you characterizing what's happening here as tax cuts.
8:11 am
this is maintaining the current tax policy in a weak economy and what you're advocating through your question is -- >> i'm not advocating. i'm questioning whether or not they have to be paid for. >> dana: it's a fine line. >> brian: for example, the taxes go up on people who make over $250,000, it will bring $700 billion into the coffers. but if you tax the rest of the american population, get over a trillion dollars to the coffers. it's like the tree falls in the woods. whose money is it? >> steve: right. >> dana: there is a reason that senator mcconnell's bill is called the tax hike prevention act, which they could pass right now if they wanted to. i think what's interesting is that chris christie is very skillful and remember, he's a prosecutor. u.s. attorney. he gets that little word in there that -- >> steve: advocate. >> dana: i don't think david gregory is advocating, but when you listen to it over and over
8:12 am
again, that's an interesting way to -- >> brian: to draw somebody out. will he be a vice presidential candidate? here is chris christie with that question. >> can you see me as somebody as a vice president, david? after that question about wrecking ball. >> steve: so he's not advocating for vice president, but he's not interested in president in 2012. he said that on our program. but after 2012, he later went on to say, i'm going to need a job. i got four kids between the ages of 7 and 17. stand by. >> brian: it will be a few years. coming up, 32 of the 49 house democrats who voted for health care lost their races. maybe they should have paid attention to our next guest. she lost her seat after voting for president clinton's health care overhaul. what else can we learn from her? we'll find out next. >> dana: wonder woman, coming back to tv. the original wonder woman, linda carter, will be here live to
8:13 am
weigh in. >> steve: there she is, live screen left.

8:16 am
>> critics say health care reform sank some candidates during the midterm elections, but a week later, some lawmakers still insist that health care is a priority. our politicians -- are politicians ignoring americans' plea for a change? joining us to discuss this matter is former democrat congresswoman who lost her seat after voting for president clinton's budget back in -- was that 1994? >> 93. >> steve: '93. she joins us today from philadelphia. as we look at all these democrats who will not be going back to their jobs and they say, you know, i wonder if it was health care, maybe i shouldn't have said yeah, i'm completely for this, you have unique perspective, what do you think? >> well, look at what happened.
8:17 am
a lot of the middle, a lot of the moderate middle went down, so we are looking at a congress that is pretty polarized and i think that is a problem -- i think that's a huge problem in that listen to what the public is saying. they want answers and they want them now. i think the republicans and the democrats move at their own peril if they're not going to give them an answer, if they're not going to move. what does that mean? i think david stuckman has it right. we have to figure out how we get rid of pay down the deficit and the debt. we're not doing it. we're talking in terms of $100 billion. we're not talking in terms of looking at entitlements. if we don't do that, we are in deep trouble. >> steve: right. there are people on both sides of the aisle who say they eventually got to address that.
8:18 am
david stockman, he worked for reagan, but he wrote a nasty book about reagan, so i don't know if he's the greatest critic for that thing. when you look back at your vote in '93, you say, you know, i was the vote that passed his budget. if i wouldn't have voted that way, i might still be there. so you got to figure some of these democrats are saying, you know what, maybe i didn't have to do that, because then i'd still be going back to washington. >> i think politicians have to say, what were you put there for? i thought that i was put there to make a difference. i didn't think that -- i happen to be a democrat that represented a very republican district. but it was the right thing to do and if you look at what happened afterward and i certainly didn't know it was going to happen, but we had a very, very strong '90s and most financial experts will tell you that it started with the passage of that budget. >> steve: and we were coming out
8:19 am
of a recession anyway and the economy was -- you look at the cycles of the stock market, we were bound to go up anyway. you're absolutely right. it was a time of a lot of gain. but right now the big problem is jobs and where are the jobs and a lot of democrats probably punished for that as well. where are the jobs? >> i'm sorry. i lost you for a second. >> steve: what i had said a number of democrats probably punished because there aren't enough jobs right now for the people who want them. >> oh, absolutely. what are people angry at? they're angry at our, the government spending a lot of money and it's not getting to them. so what do we have to do? that's what we have to concentrate on and we have to concentrate on the entire picture. >> steve: okay. and speaking of jobs, as you hold your little ear piece in your ear right there, what about nancy pelosi, do you think that's a good idea for her to want to continue her job as the leader of her party in the
8:20 am
house? >> well, nancy would never run had she not had the votes. what are we looking at? obviously we are now talking about 2012. we've lost the independents. we don't have the independents. what do we need? we need to get the young vote, we need to get the minority vote, and we need -- i think that's going to be a complete gotv election. got to get out the vote. in philadelphia on the last election, 41% came out. 60% came out on the presidential race. sestak would have won had philadelphia turned out. i think that's what they're looking at. i think as i said before, with the polarization, nancy feels very comfortable running again. >> steve: i think there are a number of republicans who would say yeah, that's good. hope she keeps her job. >> all the signs.
8:21 am
>> steve: hire pelosi. thank you very much. >> you're welcome. >> steve: 20 minutes after the top of the hour. the tea party instrumental in giving republicans control of the house. >> we're coming. we're proud. we're strong, we're loud. >> steve: but gop leadership still not ready to give the tea party a leadership role. is that a good idea? first, the guy who hits all the jackpots is going to share the secret.

8:24 am
>> brian: we probably all wished at some point we could win the lote. one man won seven times and figured out a system to help you, too. >> dana: joining us is the author of this book, learning how to win the lote. thank you for joining us. >> thank you very much for having me on the show. >> dana: so tell us how you first found out that you had a
8:25 am
system or a knack for this. >> i started out playing just like everybody else, losing most of the time. after doing that for a while, i said, there has got to be something you can do to get a better chance. i started coming up with ideas. i threw away the ones that didn't work, increasing the one that did work, and eventually i won my first, my second, my third, by the time i won my fourth grand prize, that's when i knew i had a method. >> steve: here is your first tip. when playing scratch ticket, by all of your tickets for the same game. what does that do? >> i see people doing this all the time. they go to the store and they say to the clerk, let me see, i'll take one of those and one of those and three of these. you might as well put a blindfold on, take a loaded gun and try to hit the target. it's not going to happen. if you're going to buy as an example, spend $20 and you're going to buy ten, $2 tickets, instead of splitting that up among various games, buy all ten tickets of the same game, that
8:26 am
way they're in a row. you're increasing your chances of winning, which is what my method is all about. increasing your chances of winning. >> brian: let's go to tip two, go to a lottery web site and check out how many grand prize tickets have been claimed. why? >> absolutely. i see people playing games that the grand prizes have all been found. therefore, you're not going to win. if you go to the lottery web site and let's say you're looking at two different scratch ticket games to play, if you look up on the site, it will tell you, okay, on this game, out of the ten grand prize tickets that were printed, there is still eight of them left. on this game, out of the ten grand prize tickets that were printed, there is only three left. >> dana: that makes sense. but so everybody gets all the tips. the third one is you always play the same numbers. you do that every time? >> yes, i do. one of my strongest things i tell people is don't play quick picks. >> steve: that's always what i do. no wonder i've always lost. you say save all of your
8:27 am
tickets, just in case, plus buy a ticket for every extra ball number. why? >> all right. in florida is one of states that's involved with powerball as many other states are, and a game called mega millions that different states belong to. in florida, we also have a game called mega money. in that, you have to pick the extra ball like the other games. so there are 22, 1 through 22 are the numbers to choose from. if you're going to buy 22 tickets for that night's drawing, make sure that the mega money ball for each ticket is different. so you're going to cover all 22 numbers. therefore, you're going to win, you may only win the free ticket, but winning a free ticket is better than not winning anything at all. >> brian: richard, how much are you up overall. with all the wins and losses, what are you up? >> i'm up in the millions. >> steve: whoa! >> dana: can i get a list of those tips? >> steve: if you folks watching, you want more information about the book or tips, go to our web
8:28 am
site fox and they'll be there shortly. >> brian: i have a punch you'll have the rest of the day off. >> i have fun. >> steve: join us for more later. the happiest place on earth, when you're rich. thank you very much. >> brian: coming up, defeating protests with patriotism. how this group is working to stop the hateful protests outside soldiers' funerals. >> dana: look at this puzzle. can you solve it? the wheel of fortune contestant who did with one letter. >> steve: wonder woman coming back to television. linda carter is here live in the halls. linda, come toward the studio. you're next on this adventure of "fox & friends."
8:29 am
8:30 am
8:31 am
8:32 am
>> it's time for some of our shots of the morning. show you what we were doing. brian and i went to this event last year. i went this year. held every year in dell ray beach, florida. chris everett, since she retired, started this charity thing and she has raised close to $20 million. >> dana: it's astounding. >> steve: for various at risk children and families down there and i was one of the celebrities -- well, one of the people on television who played. they had mar teen-- martin d a, david cook, the "american idol" was there. dan jansen. and it was a lot of fun. the picture was taken by fred
8:33 am
and susan malane from camera work, usa. they were commenting. i was actually the judge at one point. >> dana: were you faired and balanced? >> steve: fox i was. >> brian: you let the least talented person win. of course -- >> steve: that's where i was. where were you, dana? >> dana: i was invited to be the guest honor at the united states marine corps birthday ball. so there i am. >> steve: which one are you? >> dana: that's with colonel anderson who runs the show there. obviously i was the shortest person in the whole building. >> brian: where was this? >> dana: it was in washington, d.c. they sheraton by the pentagon. they have a birthday ball every year. that is a big deal for the marines. i was so honored to be there and i got to give a little speech. the best thing about that is that they eat dessert first. >> brian: they do. do you -- >> steve: you help cut the cake. >> dana: i read that i was supposed to have the sword and cut the cake and offer it to the oldest marine and the youngest
8:34 am
marine. but they didn't let me near the sword. i just waited until they gave me what i needed. >> steve: the official anniversary is coming up on wednesday, which we will mark right here on "fox & friends." >> dana: that's great. >> steve: job well done. did you bring us any cake? >> dana: i didn't. but i will tomorrow. >> steve: next time, think doggy bag. >> dana: there was nothing left. we have to start with a fox news alert. president obama is attend ago state dinner in india in an hour and this comes after his address to a joint session of parliament there. wendell goler is live in new delhi with the latest. tell us all about it. >> the president's address to parliament, he called for india to become a permanent member of the united nations security counsel, called on pakistan to bring to justice those behind the 2008 terrorist attacks in mumbai, and called for the end of u.s. restrictions on exports to india, of space and defense technology that have existed since the cold war. it was a response to saturday's announcement of $10 billion in
8:35 am
u.s. exports to end i can't that will support more than 50,000 jobs. the speech to parliament came after talks with india's prime minister and on this, the last full day of his state visit, the longest to a single foreign country, mr. obama's presidency, they agreed the world's two largest democracies should have what both called the defining relationship of the 21st century, one in which mr. obama later told parliament, india should have a larger global responsibility. >> the justice and sustainable international order that america seeks includes a united nations that is efficient, effective, credible, and legitimate. i look forward to a reformed united nations security counsel, that includes india as a permanent member. [ applause ] >> as part of that increased responsibility, the president said india can no longer, in his words, turn a blind eye to human rights violations in countries
8:36 am
like burma. in the past, he said, this country has shied away from what he called staying true to democratic principles. tomorrow the president is scheduled to go to jakarta where he spent some of his boyhood years. that is a trip that was canceled or postponed three times and i can tell you, his aides are closely watching a volcano erupting that could conceivably make number four. dana? >> dana: thank you so much, wendell. a connecticut jury begins day four of deliberations in the sentencing of steven hayes. he was convicted of torturing and killing a woman and her two daughters during a 2007 home invasion. hayes could get either the death penalty or life in prison. >> brian: okay. missouri town banding together to keep the controversial westborough baptist church from protesting outside a soldier's funeral. a weekend service for sergeant first class serviceman was lined with giant flags, instead of the usual protest signs.
8:37 am
when they found out a protest was scheduled, they showed up early, took all the parking spots and showed lots of patriotism. >> steve: you've seen wheel of fortune. look how one contestant won with one letter on the board. >> i've got a good feeling about this. >> that's right. >> steve: look at that! and that woman, we heard her voice, she won a trip to the caribbean. >> brian: even pat sajack who has done this thing, didn't know about that. >> steve: she obviously got the prize. >> dana: you solve the puzzle -- >> steve: you solve -- >> brian: it's been 30 years since she wore the star spangled outfit, but linda carter is forever known as wonder woman. now there are plans for a new tv series based on the super
8:38 am
heroine. but what actress can fill her boots? >> steve: the original wonder woman herself, linda carter just jetted in. she jumped on a cab here in new york, came in. how are you doing? >> i'm great. >> steve: they're talking now about a wonder woman revival. david e. kelly, the guy from all those drama shows is talking about doing it again. >> he's great at sort of underlying comedy and character development and so i spoke to him several weeks ago and he is perfect for it because he will really give the character life. it's not just going to be a cartoon or comic book thing, which is what we tried to do. >> brian: are you going to be in it? >> i don't know. >> dana: you started with music and in singing and actually going back to that now. tell us more about that. >> well, about five years ago, barry wiseman, that is from new york, he's a producer, asked me
8:39 am
to go to london to do "chicago." i had stopped singing when i had my children and so i started again after that and i put my band together and we do jazz at lincoln center. this week i'll be at feinstein for starting on tuesday througho the weekend and working on a new album. my last album debuted at number 6 on billboard. >> steve: congratulations. >> thank you. >> brian: so you left washington to go to london to be in "chicago." >> dana: now you're in new york. >> brian: listen, you got to tell me who would be the next wonder woman. tell me who you think, because i'm sure david e. kelly must have brought that up, who is perfect to do that. >> he said, linda, what is your opinion of who should be the next one? >> brian: what did you say, hypothetically? >> i actually asked him, i get asked all the time and he said, just tell them to be patient.
8:40 am
>> dana: when you first started, there was a lot of people wondering, will anybody actually watch a woman heroine? >> they didn't even think a woman had a tv cue could hold an audience. there weren't really any women that had their own shows except for a few comediennes. so they were kind of surprised. >> steve: the spin we're watching right there, you pioneered that. >> i invented it. i didn't invent spin, but i invented that's the way she changes. >> steve: in other words, every night bill o'reilly says the spin stops here, you actually started it. >> the spin starts and stops here. >> brian: why do you think it is that women commit crimes, but yet we need women to find criminals? >> what? >> brian: women don't commit crimes. i just realized that. >> you guys all need mothers,
8:41 am
that's why. >> steve: no women criminals? >> brian: where are they? >> steve: bonnie and clyde. >> brian: one or two, it's amazing. here is what i think would be the perfect wonder woman. i think it will be meggen fox. >> she actually kind of trashed wonder woman. >> brian: in what way? >> she said it was a dumb -- it's what i read, any way. she thought it was dumb. like what's the big whoop, like making people tell the truth. >> brian: i'm going to go for my number two. >> no, i mean, i like her. i decided she shouldn't trash wonder woman. >> steve: it's a franchise. >> brian: why such tight outfits? >> you know what, brian, she didn't think anything of it. it was the guys that go oh, my
8:42 am
god. she doesn't think she's all that. >> dana: brian, you should wear something skin tight. >> brian: and then fight crime. >> steve: i'll give you $100 not to do that. >> dana: he can be like the men on the italian riff yarr i can't who wear those tiny speedos. >> brian: if i can get a clothing deal. >> dana: thank you for bringing us wonder woman. my sister wore her wonder woman underroos every day. my mother had to fight with her. >> brian: can we get a picture? >> i love wonder woman. i'm thrilled they're doing it again. david e. kelly is the perfect person. >> steve: the time is right. >> dana: good luck with your new album. >> steve: if you would like more information about it, go to our web site. >> come to feinstein this week. >> brian: up next. >> dana: incredible look into the life of secretary of state hillary clinton, 20 hour work days, top secret envoys and technology you won't see anywhere else. >> brian: republicans are promising to tackle health care
8:43 am
head on. but do they have a chance or are we looking at gridlock? peter johnson, jr. explains.
8:44 am
8:45 am
8:46 am
>> dana: they call her the energizer secretary and now you can see why. for the first time, national geographic got an all access pass behind the scenes of the state department. >> brian: for protecting u.s. interests abroad to life on the broad, it's an exclusive look at hillary clinton and her work as the secretary of state. >> it's like the duck on top of the water, sailing along looking very calm because there is so much activity going on underneath in order to make my trips successful. >> brian: inside the state department premieres tonight, 9:00 o'clock on the national geographic channel and with us right now for a preview is executive producer and director
8:47 am
steve hearget. what surprised you most about this trip? you knew it was going to be busy. what surprised you most? >> i think just the pace of the trip itself surprised me. they maintain an astonishing pace, 18, 20 hours a day. these trips are just beyond rigorous. we had just come from a shoot in the amazon where we spent 30 days. my cameraman said to me, this is way more tiring than that trip to the amazon. it was surprising how hard and how fast the pace is. >> dana: steve, this is dana. i remember when condoleeza rice was secretary of state and i was at the white house as a press secretary and just talking to her about how she dealt with the constant jetlag and in a way she just had to decide to not worry about it. how does secretary clinton and her staff deal with it? >> she has her own cabin in the plane obviously, so she tries to get cat naps in between. but everyone says that she keeps ahead of even the 20 somethings
8:48 am
on her staff. there is a reason hi call her the energizer secretary. i think a lot of her stamina comes from her experience on the campaign trail, which keeps her in good stead to running america's image overbroad. she travels all over the planet. >> brian: where did you find the most unscripted interaction? so much is diplomacy and the smile and the wave. where was the most unscripted part? >> you know, what really impressed me was when we went to pakistan with her. the folks around her and the state department really believe in what they call public diplomacy. they put her in a setting in a university in lahor where nine and nine out of ten pakinstanis have a negative opinion of the united states. the audience was not screened and they went toe to toe with secretary clinton. that was really impresssive to see. they're willing to assume that kind of risk and she gave as
8:49 am
good as she got. it's part of her entire strategy of engaging in candid discourse with the public overseas because she thinks that's a critical element in foreign policy. >> dana: before we let you go, what are you trying to get across for viewers tonight it tune in to see? what do you think they'll walk away with? >> we journeyed into the nooks and crannies of the state department and followed secretary clinton literally around the world for almost a year. what i hope people see and learn from our film is just when they read the next headline or see the next story on fox news about foreign diplomacy and american foreign policy, they maybe have a deeper insight and understanding about just what it takes to get that done and how truly complex that job is. >> dana: all right, steve. thanks so much for joining us this morning. >> brian: the special areas saturday on the geographic channel at 9:00 o'clock. thanks. coming up, republicans are promise to go turn back the
8:50 am
president's sweeping changes in health care. but do they have a chance? peter johnson, jr. prescription for truth next. >> dana: first, we're going to check in with bill hemmer. save us. >> you guys okay? that's a curve ball. >> brian: we can handle it. >> yes, you can. how does the pea that's right get along with the rest of republicans? or better yet, is it vice-versa? michelle bachman is live on that. joe miller still fighting for votes in alaska's senate race. he makes his case live on our program. how do you stop health care? republicans say start with the money and we will will some ideas. join us in ten minute force a busy -- for a busy monday morning. top of the hour.
8:51 am
8:52 am
8:53 am
8:54 am
>> dana: now that the republicans have control of the house, they plan to tackle president obama's new health care law head on. >> this bill is such a fiscal and economic train wreck for our country and for the health care system itself, we're going to do everything we can to try and repeal and replace this thing and ultimately in 2013 is when it will be done the right way. >> dana: will going after the purse strings and putting regulations into the spending bill cause a gridlock in washington? our guest is fox news analyst, peter johnson, jr. he's here with his prescription for truth. >> great job. >> dana: thank you. even though brian hit me. what can the republicans actually do? >> the republicans are looking to control the purse. they're saying, we're going to defund a certain program, we're not going to allow funding for certain regulations to go forward. they're going to try and strike at the heart of the individual mandate, the government order that you must buy insurance by perhaps not funding 5 to $10 billion in irs costs and
8:55 am
agents. but it does lead to the possibility of gridlock in washington on this issue and other issues. it's a very difficult position for republicans to be in to undo a very unpopular program for many call it obamacare, but for some, it's become a popular program. the risk is that the democrats say to the american people in a kind of unfair and unrealistic way, look at these republicans. they're trying to take stuff away from you. and then the republicans say to a segment of the american people, i'm trying to restore what was taken away from you by obamacare. so it's a slippery slope. my thought is that we need to have a robust debate on the intersection and we've talked about this before, of jobs and health care. how this health care program that the president has put in has made it unsustainable for a lot of current employers and for future employers in this country. but at the same time, there needs to be an understanding by
8:56 am
the republicans who now control the house that they need to engage the american people, that they need to have an active plan for patient-centered health care and that it's not enough to trash obamacare. >> dana: on the starving of the resource, congress has the power to do that. in fact, when the war was so unpopular, one of the ways congress can express its will is hold back the money. it's a legitimate way to move forward, whether it's smart politically. >> it's a smart democratic tactic in which you say, the house and the senate have the power of the purse and they have the capacity to defund, to not fund initiatives and laws that have been passed in the past. that's what they intend to do. but at the same time, my thought is that the american people are hungry for a real plan. they're hungry for a way that their health care is maintained, that it's maintained in an economic way. that's what all americans are looking for. republicans, democrats and independents. >> dana: more "fox & friends" in two minutes.
